WordPress 2.3 Beta 1

Posted August 28, 2007 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under Development, Releases.

The past 3 months we’ve been working feverishly on the next version of WordPress, 2.3. Today we’re releasing the first beta of 2.3 and we’re hoping the more adventurous and savvy among you will help us test it.

Some of the features of 2.3 include plugin and core update notification, built-in tags support, faster javascript, and SEO-friendly URL redirection.

However all of the new functionality is still very rough, so only test the beta if you are comfortable troubleshooting PHP issues, filing tickets, and backing up your data religiously. If you’re interested you can join the wp-testers mailing list and download the beta here.

WordPress 2.2.2 and 2.0.11

Posted August 5, 2007 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under Releases.

Today we have two security-related releases available for both users of our main 2.2 branch and the legacy 2.0 branch. As these releases include only security and minor bugfixes they should not cause any plugin or theme compatibility issues, so you have no good excuse not to upgrade.

On our Trac you can see the bugs closed for 2.2.2 and 2.0.11 to get more details about the problems fixed. With a little more Trac magic you can see all the changed files for 2.2.2 or 2.0.11.

Our download page is always the best place to get the latest release, and our legacy page now has the latest in the 2.0 branch.

As always, we have upgrade instructions available and an extended upgrade guide.

Thanks to Alex C. and Benjamin Flesch for help with this release.
